|Oxalis purpurea L. This plant was brought to the Azores as an|
ornamental garden plant, but has since naturalized and is
very common in pastures. This one was found in the pasture
at Remedios, where we counted army worm caterpillars.
|Amanita sp. (I'd call this A. pantherina in the UK)|
|Migratory Locust (Locusta migratoria)|
Possibly a juvenile Agalenate redii (Araneidae), known from
São Miguel. Less likely, but possibly, it could be Neoscona
subfusca, known only from neighbouring islands. Thanks
to Jørgen Lissner for these suggestions. If you want to know
more about spiders, you should visit "The Spiders of the Azores"
by Jørgen Lissner and Paulo Borges. (Photo: Paul Ramsay)
